Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx is making a case for buying the whole album anyway ... like everyone did back in the day, when singles were more of a promotional thing, as opposed to the default way most people bought music.
In a Facebook post, Nikki says, quote, "[As a kid], I always fell deeper in love with the band because ALL their songs spoke to me. Of course, some jumped out at you right away, while others grew on you, but you didn't skip any songs.
"You would listen from top to bottom over and over again. When I started making albums, I always believed the whole album was the adventure. There's the lead single for radio, but when did that become the whole experience.
"Maybe I'm old-fashioned in how I believe music should be listened to, but I refuse to ever buy just a band's single. I always buy the WHOLE album, [and] I encourage you to do the same ...
"Dig deep, and I promise you . . . you'll fall deeper in love with the artist than you ever could only listening to one song."
